FORTHCOMING SOCIAL EVENTS AND DATES

8am SUNDAY SERVICE – During the Interregnum the 8am Sunday communion service will only be on the first Sunday of the month. 

MIDWEEK COMMUNION -  During the Interregnum there will be NO Wednesday 10 am service.  Have you spotted the mistake?  That is, the one in the April/May edition of The Keston Magazine. An extra service for 19th April has been listed and there isn't one! Apologies from Sally.

KESTON KRAFTERS – Do you enjoy craft making?  Come along to our sessions on the 3rd Thursday of the month on Thursday 18th May & 15th June @ 10am – 12 noon in the Keston Parish Church Hall.  Do bring along your own art or craft project, or join in with trying a new one.  Cost will be £3 per session + craft workshop materials on the day, which will include coffee/tea and biscuits.

HEALING & WHOLENESS (H&W) - Every 3rd Sunday,  we offer healing and wholeness prayers for all who may like the benefit of a special prayer,  just after taking Communion, in the foyer.  Dates are Sundays and 21st May & 18th June   At these services we will also serve non-alcoholic grape juice to open the sacrament up to all our worshippers, especially those allergic to alcohol.

MEDITATION GROUP – Every 3rd Monday –  15th May & 19th June.  We begin at 7.30 pm in the Church or church hall.  All are very welcome, to take time out from our busy lives.

MESSY CHURCH

Our next Messy Church is on Tuesday 21st March 2017 from 3.30 until 6pm.  We begin the session with crafts, and games, then we go into Church for a short Christian talk with music, praise and prayers, then return to the hall for a High Tea.  Everyone is most welcome!


  FAMILY WORSHIP

Do come and join us on the first Sunday of each month for our new Family Worship service at 10am.  The service is designed as an All-age Service, so we hope that children and families, indeed people of all ages, will come and be able to feel involved.  Do please let other people know about this service.
